Examining the delicate exterior and interior compositions of painter, Hubert Arthur Finney, this exhibition contextualises the artist’s body of work with never-before seen paintings.
Based on a recently discovered autobiography of the life and work of painter Hubert Arthur Finney, this exhibition showcases previously unrecorded works from the artist’s studio for this first time in over 50 years – a rare opportunity to witness previously unseen works from this impeccable painter.
The paintings featured are exquisite examples of Finney’s ability to capture indoor and outdoor locations. His original compositions of city streets and domestic interiors are intricately detailed, manipulating light and dark and showcase a range of brush strokes and techniques. These are countered by his gentle landscapes of Berkshire and Surrey, painted mostly at dawn and dusk.
Finney originally studied at the Royal College of Art and was a protégé of prolific painter and well-known war artist, William Rothenstein, as well as teaching at the Chelsea School of Art alongside other legendary artists such as sculptor, Henry Moore.
